`This is a major new work of reference...Educators and parents should welcome its clear, concise style, where the emphasis is on textual content rather than visual overload.'
`Each subject is clearly explained with enough detail to give an understanding, but not too much so as to be confusing...A terrific present that will be referred to for years to come.'
`the text is written in such clear and simple language that even subjects like genetics and microchips become understandable. It also has a brilliant and eaasily accessible website, with illustrations and links to hundreds of other recommended websites. There couldn't be a better present for
a budding scientist.'
Mail on Sunday
`a handsome production, from many hands, with individual articles carefully organised, cross-referenced and enriched by relevant illustrations which do not overpower the text. All together, the well-written and accurate expositions must contain as much science, as clearly explained,as you
could possibly stuff into one volume which is not too big to lift...What is here will be gratefully transcribed for a million KS2 and 3 homework assignments.'
Times Educational Supplement
`an authoritative and comprehensive reference book for the 21st century...It is a must for all school libraries.'
